Yet another example of how we challenge expectations is our Thrive Dining program. Thrive Dining restores the joy of dining for individuals living with physical and cognitive changes. Using our own, high quality, freshly prepared menu items, we transform them into incredibly tasty, nutritionally balanced, protein packed meals that are served as bite size hors d’oeuvres intended to be eaten by hand. Thrive Dining thus eliminates embarrassing food fumbles and replaces them with manageable meals that are so enjoyable, they’re ordered as often as other main dishes. Not only are the meals delicious, but also dining with friends and family is devoid of interruption or distraction, thanks to Thrive Dining. Best of all, it adds one more activity residents “can do” for themselves, building self-confidence and enhancing well-being.
